The Corporate Social Venturing Challenge is an innovative partnership between Big Issue Invest and a number of corporate and creative partners, that will take your social business or charity to the next level through access to funding, networks and unique partnerships.
To enter, your social business needs to be in its early-phase development.
If you have a strong team, a track record and ambitious plans, you’ll be in with a chance to gain up to £50,000 investment through our collaborative competition we’re calling ‘Caterpillars’ Cocoon’.
The Challenge brings together investors, mentors and partners including Barclays, Experian, First Ark, Fusion21, University of Northampton, and Places for People.
Applications for CSV 2015 are now open in the ‘About the Challenge’ section. Please see our Events section for details of our Bigger Together event in Northampton for social entrepreneurs.
